Default 1700 point Tournament List

Okay, I have a Tournament in late December and I really want to win! This is my tentative tourny list, please advise me on everything!

HQ
Shas'el
TA, HWMT, FB, PR
97 Points

ELITES

Shas'ui Crisis Suit
Team Leader, HWMT, FB, PR, TA
77 Points

TROOPS
Fire Warrior Team
10 fire warriors, Team Leader, bonding knife, Devilfish, TA, MT, DC, SMS
235 Points

Fire Warrior Team

FAST ATTACK
Pathfinder team
Six Pathfinders, Devilfish, TA, MT, SMS, DC
192 points

Pathfinder team

HEAVY SUPPORT
Hammerhead Gunship
Railgun, SMS, TL, MT, DP, DC
185

Hammerhead Gunship
Railgun, SMS, TL, MT, DP, DC

Hammerhead Gunship
Railgun, Brust Cannons, TL, MT, DP, DC, FD
180

1560 points


The Pathfinder teams will be placed in a building with an ammo dump... 9 probable markerlights a turn, everything in my army minus the fish will fire at BS 5

So what should I spend my remaining points on? I could get two FB, TA Pirhanas, twenty Kroot, or some stealth suits (Up to 3 with five drones, or take a four drone team to cause havoc) I have 140 points left.


I also know that the battles will be played with the Cities of Death rules... which I never bothered to get or read. Should I?

EDITED

Good solid HQ. But IMO, why not pay 10 points more and get the extra bs and another wound? Its so worth it to have 4 wounds :P

4 Helios suits is a bit unbalanced, add Fireknife to these. You need more long range MEQ than short.

Why TA And MT on a fish? When are you going to move 12 inches where you'll need to shot more than your defensive burst cannon anyway...... and bs 3 is alright. i would save the toys for your tanks.

Same As above for the fish... but i would trade the TA, MT and DC for 2 seeker missiles and use the pathfinders as a tank hunting unit. thats what i do with mine.

Solid again. I personally find that Broadsides are better than hammerheads if want a solid fireline. what are you going for, mobility or fire power? i would trade one of these for a skyray.

for an all comers list you need a bit more infantry killing. 6 stealthsuits will do. I would also get another squad of pathfinders, with a fish with 2 seeker for more tank hunting. People really don't see it coming sometimes.

Because I get the increased BS from the TA and my IC status should save me from shooting.

If anything becomes fireknives its the HQs to keep them farther back and preserve IC status.

Hmm, I'll consider trading the MT and TA for FDs and thus saving a few points

No, flat out no, the fish here acts as part of the skimmer wall, and early on as a infantry hunter, I hate seekers, they only have a 47% accuracy rate (after the wasted markerlights) lights are so much more useful marking for firewarrior teams or heads.

A skyray would be up for consideration, simply because of the mobile armoured markerlights and the salvo of turn one missiles.

Seekers just aren't that good at tank hunting I find, so no there. But another pathfinder team is up for consideration. But I couldn't put both a 6 man stealth team and another pathfinder team in together. And the skyray would fill part of the role of the second team of pathfinders while being armoured and for less points.

372 points left eh? Well we've got some great nastiness to suggest!

1 - Give both the fire warrior devilfish SMS. This is deadly, doubly so in CoD games.
40 points

2 - KROOT! Add two squads of 10 Kroot each.
140 points

Finally I'd add in either a piranha or two or some suits with missile pods. Alternativley stealths could come in handy as well.

First is easy and will be done! I don't know why I didn't think of it myself!

Second... I don't like kroot and have no desire to paint another 20 models for this tourny... Could you explain why you think they will be beneficial.

Also, I am considering giving the pathfinders a shas'ui and two shield drones, good Idea or not?


MAIN POST HAS BEEN EDITED:* Now deciding between two FB, TA Pirhanas, twenty Kroot in two squads, or some stealth suits (Up to 3 with five drones, or take a four drone team to cause havoc) I have 140 points left.

Kroot + Cities of Death = Awesome.

For 70 points you get 10 models. This squad is deadly.

a) They're guaranteed to be able to infilitrate thanks to the Infilitrate strategem (which you should take)

b) Put them in cover and they have 4+ saves, making them quite durable.

c) They're guns are surpisingly deadly, use them to target enemy infantry.

d) They're cheap scoring units that can start the game parked on objectives.

e) They're a huge pain in the ass to dig out of cover.

All in all Kroot are great, especially useful for setting up Kayoun traps, or just being a distraction that sends a key unit the wrong way.

Kroot combined with Stealth suits can be a good combo too!
